How can you help? Cruse Bereavement Care supports about 300 people each year who are struggling to cope because someone has died. 100% say they would recommend this service to others. 100% of the service is delivered by trained volunteers. Could you become one of them? Come learn about bereavement support, expand your understanding of this very rewarding type of volunteer work and equip yourself with the knowledge you'll need to decide if this special kind of volunteering is right for you. No experience necessary, could be perfect especially (but certainly not only) for the 'almost retiring' and 'newly retired' looking to devote some meaningful time to a worthwhile cause.
